Alicia Keys blessed us with a new album last week, Here. Shortly after, she released the music video to the song “Blended Family”.
The song seams to peek into Alicia’s personal life. It depicts the relationship with Swizz Beatz, her sons, and Mashonda.
As Paula Rogo writes for Essence.com:
“My new song ‘Blended Family (What You Do For Love)’ is inspired by my family’s personal journey to cultivate deeper understanding, compassion, support and love,” Keys said of the track when it was released. “To me, the word ‘family’ has no singular definition and the modern family is made up of all kinds of beautiful people of different walks of life willing to put love first.” – Essence.
The black and white video is evidence that the modern family is made up of so many different parts, different backgrounds, and different perspectives. I think the whole album speaks volumes about our world, family, and current events. If you haven’t yet, make sure you check out the new album, entitled Here.
In the mean time, check out the new Blended Family Music Video.
